Andrew Rangell: Beethoven Recital
American pianist Andrew Rangell is heard here in a program of five Beethoven sonatas, recorded at Boston's Gardner Museum in 2004. Choosing some of Beethoven's lesser performed sonatas, Rangell gives performances that display the pianist's highly personal approach with this music. Writing about Rangell's most recent New York recital, critic Charles Michener of The New York Observer wrote: "For me, the great discovery of the series has been Andrew Rangell...Mr. Rangell is an individualist. And such was his intensity-like the late Glenn Gould, he seemed to be propelled by an irresistible force-that the listener's attention was riveted to the music."
